Manatee Seminole Club Scholarship Fund

The Manatee Seminole Club is one of more than 80 local Seminole Clubs and Chapters throughout the nation. The Club was founded in 1984 and serves to create and maintain a network of alumni, fans, and friends of Florida State University in Manatee County and surrounding areas, by supporting the academic and athletic achievements of the school, its students, and student athletes. We are an extension of the Florida State University Alumni Association.

We currently have more than 2,500 Florida State alumni in Manatee County and have previously been recognized as Seminole Club of the Year by the FSU Alumni Association.

The Manatee Seminole Club’s endowed scholarship provides FSU with a permanent asset from which students receive support. Since 2010, our club has awarded almost $90,000 in scholarships to Manatee County grads attending Florida State. Thanks to your support of our programs, events, and sales we are able to fill this need. If you would like to make a donation directly to our scholarship, then please do so above. No donation is too small or big.


The Manatee Seminole Club’s launch of their new scholarship endowment campaign.

The club’s fundraising initiative aims to secure two $50,000 endowments to support deserving students from Manatee County attending Florida State University. In addition to growing their current endowment with the FSU Foundation, which provides a permanent source of academic scholarship funding, the club also plans to create an athletic endowment through Seminole Boosters. The promotion of both endowments will allow the club to provide multifaceted support for the diverse group of students coming from the county, widening the scope of scholarship applicants and further strengthening the overall mission of Florida State.
